Breitbart reports, actress Debra Messing shared a deceptively edited video claiming President Donald Trump called the coronavirus a “hoax” and asked if the soon-to-be-dead supporters of the president realize that he needs to be removed from office.
“LIAR-IN-CHIEF. #Maga have been unmoved by the 16500 lies 45 has made since elected. Now that innumerable people (including MAGA) will die, because of his lies and inaction, I wonder if MAGA will recognize that 45 must be voted out?” Debra Messing said in a tweet on Tuesday, which included the edited video promoted by a group called Fellow Americans.

Messing is promoting the lie that President Trump called the coronavirus a “hoax.” The president used the word “hoax” at a campaign rally to describe the Democrats’ attempts to politicize the coronavirus.
Even songwriter Richard Marx, a vocal Trump critic, noted that “this narrative that he called the actual virus a hoax is patently false.”
No one is more repulsed by Trump than I (except for those subjected to seeing him naked) but this narrative that he called the actual virus a hoax is patently false. He said Dems’ claim he didn’t respond to it appropriately was a hoax. Turns out they were still right.

The Will & Grace star backed Joe Biden for president earlier this month in a rambling video, telling her more than 630,000 Twitter followers that the Democratic candidate is a great communicator and a “unifier” who “believes in Science.”
“I am for Joe Biden,” adding that his recent primary win in South Carolina shows that “the African American community, which has always been the heart and soul of the [Democratic] Party, trusts Joe,” Messing tweeted the day before Super Tuesday.
Messing also claimed February that President Trump “puts Americans in mortal danger.” The actor said this while tweeting a two-year-old Washington Post article about proposed budget cuts to the CDC that never happened.
